Photographer sorry for 'small eyes' Dior picture


A Chinese fashion photographer has apologised for her "ignorance" after a picture she shot for French luxury brand Dior sparked outrage.

Today we have 5 – 7 reels available ทางเข้าslotxo from 10 to 30 playlines, while probably as many as 100 playlines are also available.

Chen Man's photo showed a woman who some Chinese netizens said perpetuated Western stereotypes of Asian faces.

"I blame myself for my immaturity and ignorance [in my past works]," Ms Chen, 41, wrote on social platform Weibo.

Dior said the photo, which was recently displayed at a Shanghai exhibition, has since been removed.

"Dior, as always, respects the sentiments of the Chinese people... If any errors happen, [Dior] must be open to receiving feedback and correct them in time," the fashion house wrote on its Weibo account on Wednesday evening, adding that the work was an artwork and not a commercial advertisement.

The photo first went on display on 12 November, but immediately sparked a backlash from some netizens - habitual users of the internet - and then local media outlets.

Fair skin and large eyes are typically considered ideal beauty features in China - and advertisements more commonly feature models with such features.

In contrast, an editorial by the Beijing Daily described the model in the Dior photo as having a "gloomy face" and sinister eyes".

"For years, Asian women have always appeared with small eyes and freckles from the Western perspective," said the editorial. "The photographer is playing up to the brands, or the aesthetic tastes of the western world."

Chinese social media users echoed this, Ms Chen's photos were an "insulting" portrayal of what those in the West believed Chinese women looked like.
